of the obama election campaign, to talk about how the organization that got this president elected, not just once, but twice, can now be used for maximum political effect during his second term. the heavies of the obama political team, senior vizer david plouffe, top aides like robert gibbs now will be part of a campaign organization called organizing for action. it was announced today in a video by president obama and the first lady. nothing like this has ever happened before. politicians have talked before about the idea of a permanent campaign but the campaign structure that elected a president has never formally been turned into an organization designed to exist outside that white house in order to help that president get done what he wants to get done. the group says their first three priorities are supporting the changes that the president just proposed to stop gun violence, also climate change, also immigration. any one of those things is a huge political lift. taking on all three of them is a sign, i think, of seriousness for how hard this white house is planning on fighting for thos

with some politics, i'm struck when you talk about republicans as they. i know you insist despite voting for president obama twice now that you're still a republican. but as i go through your record on some social issues and even foreign policy issues i challenge to you say on what basis are you still a republican? do you feel like this republican party has left you or have you left it? >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i'm still a republican. i'm a republican who grew up along with george bush xli. i grew up with ronald reagan, cap weinberger, frank carlucci that republican party, the problemen party of dick lugar and john tower. but in recent years, there's been a significant shift to the right and we have seen what that shift has produced, two losing presidential campaigns. i think what the republican party needs to do now is take a very hard look at itself and understand that the country is changed. the country is changing demo graphically. if the republican party does not change along with that demographic, they are going to be in trouble.
